Somewhere under a rainbow,
Way down deep below,
There's a pot that I’ve heard of,
In case you really have to go
When I was on a walkabout,
Why, just the other day,
I came upon this magical pot,
At the end of a rainbow’s rays
And it was just in the nick of time,
Since I had a very bad stomach ache,
But then I saw a most dreadful sign,
That surely must have been a mistake
‘Porta Potty for Construction Workers Only’
How come only they got to use it?
Why, Oh Why,
Luckily, there were some very thick bushes nearby,
Where my troubles soon fell like chocolate drops,
Way out behind that fabled pot’s magical white top
But how come only they got to use it?
Why, Oh Why,
And now, I will always very sadly wonder,
About this cherished old childhood lullaby
Who the heck had decided
Only construction workers
Would ever get to use it?
And why, oh why, couldn't I?
.2007, Mr. ‘Had To Go Real Bad’ Ed
And From Now On,
When I’m Walkin About,
I’ll Be Wearin my Tool Belt,
And Carryin My Union Card, Too

|You crack me up Ed, and what belly laugh I got out of this one. Card carrying pot user are you? Reninds me of the one with the catchy phrase on it that sat in fromt of my house in remodeling phase...even thought about putting a wreath on it and using it as the focal point of a family Christmas Card. Never had the guts though...and it's a good thing too. Wouldn't want to steal the thunder out from under your rainbow. So good to get a minute to read you again!!!

|A unique spin on a hallowed tune, Ed... You won't catch me following your Yellow Brick Road, thanks... And I don't think your Union Card will be able to absorb much of what you might need it for... I have to say, I shall be glad when all the visitors go home and the dunes recover from all the debris and tissue that has been left behind during the summer... So much for the ecological toilets the National Trust have installed at the beach; being basically no more than "a hole in the ground", the stench is sooo bad that people refuse to use them and... you've guessed it... use the ground anyways... A digression, I know, and nothing short of a load of hot air from me as usual... Kubicle Kate xx|

|Mr. Ed, I've seen the picture many times when sent to me by my e-mail buddies. However, you've captured its essence with your comical poem, and what a lovely tune to complement it. You gave me a good laugh.|

|That rainbow wasn't ending in a pot of gold, just on a blue crapper.
Next time use it, and let them to come to wipe you out of there!!!
Only construction workers? Are their arses a Presidential Seal?
|Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
|Oh, dear...funny, but not funny. When you gotta' go, you gotta' go. Just make sure you go before you go on a walkabout; it'd be safer that way! *grins*
Very well done yet again; bravo, Ed!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
